We call my Grandma the "World Traveler" for obvious reasons-- if you've met her you'd be instantly touched by her stories of adventure as she globe trotted in her younger years. Listening to her repeat some of the classics to my friends this past Thanksgiving, I couldn't help but let my mind wander to how grand it would be to have a global adventure of my own with my friends. First stop... India...

New York City's visual superstars Confetti System have established themselves as masterminds of their craft throughout collaborations with stores such as JCrew and Urban Outfitters as well as collabs with Opening Ceremony and "W" Mag. Their fun yet unique signature tassels make them the perfect inspiration for the holidays. Instead of going with just a little black dress, try a fur trim sweater or a feather trimmed hemline. Either way, be unique this holiday season to shine bright in your own light.

Life has taken a few strange turns for me within the past month. I realized that I wasn't nearly as much of an adult in college as I am today. It's like the small child who keeps telling their parents "I can do it!" But then when the parents decide to finally give them the chance to act that the child then realizes how difficult the task really is. That's the best way to describe what life in your 20's is like. We're all just roaming around, trying to figure it out. It's going to take some time and we're going to mess up (a lot) but I've learned that you just have to pick yourself up, appreciate what you DO have and then keep on moving on--- it all happens for a reason. And if that doesn't work there's always motivational Pinterest quotes to get you through the day.

You know how they say that couples start to dress like each other after a while? Well when Ryan and I stepped out to take these pics you wouldn't believe what he was wearing--- jeans and a chambray shirt. He asked if he should change but I advised against it-- if we were going to look like twins might as well own it! I just love a comfy Canadian suit on the weekends, I can't help it.
